The proper lighting can change any area’s ambiance and mood and lower your energy bills. Deck lighting is necessary because it makes your outdoor living space much safer. However, deck lighting also provides aesthetic benefits while showcasing well-loved yard features. Whether you plan to have at-home date nights on the deck or prefer to use it for gatherings with friends and family, outdoor lighting will benefit any home. Here are four deck lighting options that we encourage you to consider.
Low Voltage Deck Lighting
Low voltage lighting is beneficial because significantly lower voltage runs through the light fittings themselves, making it a safer option that reduces severe electric shock. Also, these lights typically come in smaller bulb options, meaning more creative choices. You can place these smaller fittings in tight areas where other options might not fit, ensuring that your outdoor living space receives maximum light. In addition, this type of deck lighting isn’t susceptible to rain and moisture and lasts for a long time.
Nothing quite says “fiesta” or “party” like string lights. Even a small gathering on the deck will feel like a major event with string lights. You can use string lights on an outdoor deck or enclosed porch. If you hang them vertically from the ceiling, it aids in giving your yard a “curtain” effect. String lights draped against the wall will give your deck an easygoing, “free spirit” feel.
We can embed LED lights into your deck to give it an atmospheric feel without the hazards of people tripping over wires. Deck lighting installed within boards provides a visual cue for the deck’s edge. They also illuminate plants and other landscaping or hardscaping features. In addition, LED lights last for a while.
Recessed Stair Lighting
Not all decks have stairs. However, if yours does, adding recessed stair lighting to your deck is one of the wisest choices. Well-lit stairs prevent falls and trips with a soft glow.
Post lights are the perfect addition to recessed stair lighting. It’s a smart way to direct your guests toward your deck’s steps and comes in solar and LED options. Dark railing coupled with post lights modernizes your outdoor living space.
Does the sun beam down on your yard? If so, solar deck lighting might be a valuable and unique tool to illuminate your yard. It’s a cost-effective and user-friendly option that sits low to the ground to offset potted plants and shrubbery. If your yard is missing a bit of luxury, solar lights are a perfect touch. However, keep in mind that you might want to add additional lighting to ensure that you efficiently light your entire yard.
